Insights

A word about words

In marketing, we’re often told that when it comes to copy, it’s best to keep things short. Headlines should be succinct and understood in a fleeting moment. Captions should be brief enough to catch eyes in a scrolling newsfeed. Everybody’s far too busy trolley-dashing around Sainsbury’s, bouncing on and off tubes or staring at cat videos on their phones to pay attention to what brands are saying. If ads do get a look in, it’s the image that makes the impact.

Insights

Was 2018 the year retail embraced the “Internet of Thinking”?

Automated technologies have been a hot topic inside the marketing bubble for some time, but many predicted that 2018 would be the year they reached their potential – with both retailers and consumers.

A VERY MILLENNIAL HALLOWEEN

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ll have noticed that Halloween has absolutely exploded in the UK, becoming a significant event that brands and retailers can’t ignore.

Insights

THE WEIRD BUT WONDERFUL WORLD OF TRAVEL RETAIL

It’s a retail experience like no other – where else would you order a pint at 6am, grab £100 sunglasses on a whim, panic-buy a dangerously big bag of sweets for the office or pay twice the high street price for a bottle of water without a second thought? Also… luggage shops. Who’s buying luggage at the airport?!

Insights

THE RETAILER'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING 2018 (BEAR GRYLLS NOT INCLUDED)

Following a fruitful winter, numbers should be up for retailers. However, some of the big names have struggled to match year-on-year figures again. Retailer heroes, Debenhams and Next have both reported offline sales figures continuing to drop, even with big TV campaigns and sales shouts.

Insights

INSTAGRAM'S BEAUTIFUL SOUL IS WINNING THE BUSINESS

I'm a weirdo. I admit it. I’m one of those designers that gets frustrated when reading a magazine on a Saturday morning, while sitting on the sofa, because the graphic elements on the page are not perfectly aligned. Or because they’re using a terrible font. Yeah, it’s even worse with fonts.

Insights

THE RETURN OF THE QR CODE - THEY’RE NOT DEAD YET

With the latest iOS11 update, Apple have quietly introduced QR code recognition directly into the native iPhone camera app. This belated adoption of a seemingly defunct technology just might drag QR codes back from the brink of oblivion and deliver us the seamlessly connected utopia we deserve.

Insights

BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME. OR WILL THEY?

You can build it, but it absolutely does not mean people will come to it. You have to take it to them. You have to make it convenient for them to get it. And that became our strategy for Seize the Cheese; a winning campaign we created for The Grocer's Dairymen Creative Challenge.

Insights

LET'S NOT FORGET THE JOY OF SHOPPING

With the future of retail being all about ease, convenience and immediacy, retailers and brands need to remember to balance the best of both worlds – creating effective and efficient online content whilst creating exciting physical experiences that inspire exploration and experimentation.

Insights

AN AUDIENCE WITH EVERYBODY

Know your audience – the first rule of marketing, and sometimes a toughie to stick to. Particularly at Haygarth, where a single day can turn up briefs meant for everyone from Gen Z to Baby Boomers, and it’s likely you’ll go from one to the other in swift succession.

Insights

INFLUENCER MARKETING AND THE QUEST FOR AUTHENTICITY

In the last decade, how we define influence and influencers has changed beyond recognition. We now live in an era where paying a celebrity to endorse your brand isn’t enough anymore. We’ve become too cynical. What we crave is ‘authenticity’.

Insights

SEIZING THE OPPORTUNITY WITH THE INTERNET OF THINGS

Brands should consider how they can become the go-to destination for all things IoT before someone beats them to it.

Insights

MOVE OVER MILLENNIALS, IT’S TIME TO TALK ABOUT GEN Z

As the audience that will shape the immediate future of consumer behaviour, it’s essential that we understand who ‘Generation Z’ really are and how they live their lives. Only then can we appreciate the differences in how they shop compared to the generation that came before them.

Insights

TOM HARDY AND OTHER WAYS TO TALK TO MUMS

Successful brands are the ones that engage with every kind of mum and show they truly understand the reality of motherhood.

Insights

CO-CREATION AND CRAFT IN THE RETAIL ENVIRONMENT

Research has shown that consumers are increasingly searching for richer, more authentic connections through immersive experiences with each other and with brands. Co-creation and craft is set to grow in retail in 2017 and we should all be on board with embracing this collaborative approach.

Insights

AGENCY DIVERSITY: THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE GROWTH CLIENTS ARE LOOKING FOR

Studies have shown that diversity of all forms, not only at executive level, is key to business success - and nowhere is this more relevant than the world of Marketing. Without diverse teams, decision-makers can become susceptible to ‘group-think’, whereby engaging only with those who share similar views.
